Local political action is essential to electing pro-fire fighter candidates to office. Fire fighters can play a critical campaign role as a source for strategic advice, volunteers, fundraising, visibility and media events. There are a variety of factors to consider in developing a winning campaign plan. The Local Political Action site is a guide to developing your campaign plan and includes  tips to improve existing plans. With an effective campaign plan, fire fighters can be an important component to victory on Election Day.

The IAFF is proud to have more than 300 members and/or family members currently elected to public office. Fire fighters and their family members know best the unique issues first responders face in their communities. By electing our own we are ensuring that those issues are represented on the local, state and federal level. The IAFF encourages our members and their family members to run for office.
